were the days my friends
thought they'd never end
won the league three times in a row
won the FA Cup and now....
been a tough year for the McAlpine faithful.
threatening to win promotion or at least make the play-offs for
much of last season, Huddersfield Town's best player for many years
was sold to keep the bank happy and Mr Moneybags found he had a
hole in his pocket.
we embarked on year 2 of the supposed three year promotion plan
to enter the hallowed world of the Premier League things could only
get better - couldn't they? After all, Vile Parade continued to
host the elite teams of this country so why couldn't we? With a
good squad of players and a high profile manager spending the promised
millions things could only get better this season.
began writing a diary of what would hopefully be a season of great
joy as we marched into the top flight for the first time in around
30 years, only things didn't turn out as I expected and 'Those Were
The Days, My Friends' became a chronicle of dire performances both
on and off the pitch. All the thoughts are personal and in no way
reflect those of the club, in fact I would be shocked and disappointed
if they did.
